Every year around mid January the Silvaplana Lake freezes over and turns into a snowkite paradise - a vast space free of obstacles with magnificent mountain views. It's considered one of the worlds greatest snowkite spots. Being 1815 m above sea-level it's known for reliable snow conditions with heaps of sparkling powder. Lots of fun is guaranteed as the lake is kitable at every wind direction, kite sizes usually varying between 8 to 12 m². Feel free to choose between riding skis or a snowboard, depending on your skill level and liking.

Beginner Snowkite Course
The beginner snowkiting course is a two-day group course with an instructor-student ratio of one to four or less.
You will have six lesson hours within two days during which we cover theoretical knowledge & safety training as well as kite handling and of course actual snowkiting.
Risk and liability insurance are also included as are the kite and harness.
You'll begin your course using the kite in the snow and practicing its handling without wearing skis or a snowboard. Once you've gained enough confidence we'll progress to wearing skis or a snowboard and start riding!
Everybody who enrolls in the course will be given a free "Sports Paradise" T-shirt or a Mystic gift!
Join us for that extra fitness boost. In the evenings we offer fun Zumba classes or uniquely tailored functional training lessons at our gym.
We're happy to arrange an array of activities for you. May it be guided snowshoeing, cross-country or alpin skiing trips - our local staff knows the area like no other and will make sure to put together an unforgettable experience for you.
